I wonder why people dont bother to post comments anymore that are at least informative and start off a discussion , probably because the forum is tainted by a handful of negative sarcastic pricks

It was a joke, calm down.

that's literally the line a 7 year old makes after gobbing off and getting into trouble
stop being a twat and more people will be willing to chat constructively on here
Wise up, fuk has always been had people taking the piss out of each other, its what makes here decent. If I wanted sterile discussion about clothes I'd go to Ask Andy About Clothes.

calm down mate just jokes innit

The exxy Jap Mastermind?

Shame about the 5 grand price tag and massive skulls though

The (huge) skull embroidery is very fine and thankfully at the back of the jacket but the details are so well done. The rrp in Japan is around ¥450,000 which itself isn’t exactly cheap so the usual mark up makes it quite astronomical here

It's the details that make the jacket. Very well made as you would expect

Anyone know where I can grab a late deal on a Norse Projects Rokkvi 4.0 in Navy? Missed out on Black Friday deals and now kicking myself.

Anyone had both a Golden Bear and Dehen varsity? I've only owned GB, but wondering if Dehen are a good match?

^^^John Simons have some in, I think they are the only UK stockist. Quality is above GB (especially now as they seem to not be made in USA?) but only looked at them.


This SEH Kelly is quality but the sizing didn't work for me (bit tight with a jumper underneath), don't see them mentioned on here a lot.

https://www.sehkelly.com/shop/coats/balmacaan/balmacaan-in-hopsack-tweed-in-charcoal/

Bloke who runs them is extremely helpful and knowledgeable, would highly recommend them.

So I'm still split between a patterned overcoat and something more casual. Anyone seen a plain Navy Duffel reduced? Gloveral, Mackintosh, etc?

I quite like SEH Kelly but it always seems massively overpriced in comparison to to say Oliver Spencer. Is the quality really that much higher?

They make things in London on a very small scale. Maybe 20-30 of those coats? The fabric of that coat is fantastic, and it has some great details. Get the impression every element has to be done right, and then it costs what it costs but they certainly aren't greedy on the margin.

As soon as grow out of dressing like a wealthy Californian teenager from the 90s, I'm gonna be head to toe in SEH Kelly.

Picked up this Gloverall down parka from Tkmaxx. Quality seems decent and looks much better with the faux fur removed. Had them in stone and navy too.

Just looking at the SEH Kelly site. The stuff looks top quality. Will likely pick up a shirt or two.

Picked this Aspesi up (second hand) but not 100% on it. I'm not keen on the brand but it's full Harris Tweed, made in Italy and has a padded 'Thermore lining' so pretty warm.


Actual colour


Looks great with flannels and smart trousers just concerned it won't work with jeans / cords in the way a plain navy duffel or peacoat / ulster would. Same coat in a bolder pattern looks OK here as a more casual look, it's not cut like a vintage piece.

Looks great but you need to be 6ft+ to pull off.
